Palmer Buzzbitts entire life has been about New Orleans Mardi Gras. He designs and builds floats for five parades. When Hurricane Katrina floods New Orleans, he returns to discover his home and his business destroyed. He must start over.
While living in a FEMA trailer parked in front of his gutted house, he must rebuild all five parades in only four months for Mardi Gras 2006 to happen. This is not a story about a hurricane; this is the story of a man who achieves his dream and then has it taken away and his life destroyed. He must find the courage to accept change, transform disaster into survival, and bring joy back into his shattered life.About the Author
